Community Scholar Program is a nondegree program offered by the
University of Virginia's School of Continuing and Professional
Studies. Through this program, adults within Charlottesville and
surrounding communities can enroll in on-Grounds credit courses of the
University during the fall and spring semester. Courses are primarily
offered during the day, although some are offered during evening and
Community Scholars bring a broad range of experiences and backgrounds to
this program and their reasons for participating are similarly varied.
Enrolling in undergraduate courses through the Community Scholar Program
allows you to meet these varied needs whether or not you have earned a
college degree. Interested participants with a college degree may
enroll in either undergraduate or graduate level courses.
As a Community Scholar, you may enroll for an unlimited number of
semesters, but may take no more than two courses per semester, along
with any dependent laboratory or discussion sessions, for a maximum of
eight credit hours.
